The Order was a white supremacist terrorist organization, founded by Robert Mathews in 1983, that committed bank robberies, the bombing of a synagogue and the murder of a radio talk-show host. The group lives on through its imprisoned members who continue to propagandize from their cells and influence other members of the white supremacist movement.
